Long ago, Marathon Bars changed their names to Snickers – but the content under the wrapper remained exactly the same.

The Tory Party has done the opposite – kept its name but changed its content.

If I were a wizard I’d teleport Boris Johnson and his entire cabinet back to the Mansion House in April 1988.

How keenly I’d watch their faces – in fact I’d film them - for I’d love to capture their expressions as the Iron Lady described her vision of a more prosperous and environmentally-friendly future.

“Just think about it for a moment – what a prospect that is.

A single market without barriers – visible or invisible – giving you direct and unhindered access to the purchasing power of over 300 million of the world’s wealthiest and most prosperous people. Bigger than Japan. Bigger than the United States.

On your doorstep. And with the Channel Tunnel to give you direct access to it. It’s not a dream. It’s not a vision. It’s not some bureaucratic plan. It’s for real.”

What a shock!

You buy yourself a Tory-Party Bar, unwrap it, to find someone has replaced it with a Brexit-Party Bar.

And you can't get your money back!
